Birthday Honours: Billy Connolly is 'hairy, rebellious knight'

Billy Connolly has been awarded a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

It is in recognition of the comedian's contribution to entertainment and to charity.

He said the news had made him very pleased - but wouldn't really sink in until people in Glasgow began to call him Sir Billy.
